Parent and Baby Screening: 20th Century Women (15)


29 May 2017
Cinema 3

Annette Bening gives an extraordinary performance in director Mike Mills's Californian coming-of-age tale.

Single mother Dorothea (Benning) enlists two other women to help her raise her teenage son Jamie (Lucas Jade Zumann). Thereís Abbie (Greta Gerwig), her lodger, the photographer who has returned from New York with a new wave haircut and punk cynicism. And thereís Julie (Elle Fanning), Jamieís childhood best friend, apparently oblivious to the fact that heís besotted with her. Together, they muddle through helping Jamie on his quest towards adulthood.

Told in scrapbook style, itís Mike Millsís ode to the women that raised him, full of late 70s cool.
